That about sums it up.

9 eggs retrieved

5 fertilized with ICSI

3 are continuing to divide and grow

Whatever is left will be transferred in on Monday morning, at 10:15

No chance of a FET

No more further cycles

This is the end of the road



  1. Okay, I hate to say a cliche, but "It only takes one". But, see, sometimes cliches are true:

    My last IVF, they retrieved 5 eggs, 3 fertilized. 2 transfered, third one broke apart (no FET). It only took one...

    So, here is hoping those EGGOS keep fertilizing and growing!!!

  2. I'm with Delenn - it only takes one - and that one (or two) will be in you real soon latching on and growing. You've got 3 possibilities. Hang in there! We are all pulling for those 3 and for you. I know it is hard but keep positive.

  3. I know you were hoping for better results. I'm sorry, Chris. But I am really pulling for those three embies to grow bigger and better each day until they can make their way to you for a nice cozy stay. (I wasn't meaning to rhyme - it just came out that way :) )

    I'm thinking of you. XOXO

  4. This may only be the BEGINNING of your road. You may not need the FET. I know it's hard, but try and think positively! I know it's easier for us on the sidelines to say that than it is to actually do it! I will hoping, praying, and keeping everything crossed that this is IT for you!

  5. I know you are disappointed, but try to keep the faith. Your three could stay nice and strong, and be ready for action on Monday. This is very, very, very likely.

    I will hold my breath, light a candle, pray feverishly, whatever it takes to keep these 3 holding on. I'm also sending you thousands of supportive hugs.

  6. I know that you are beyond worried and I am sorry. I wish that the fert. report could have been more of what you wanted it to be. Still thinking about you and wishing great things for this cycle.

  7. You can do this!

    I know it doesn't look like you expected, but in this situation, what does?

    You've got three little embies that are dividing and raring to go. Also, I have it on good authority that a uterus is much more comfy than a petri dish.

    I am thinking good thoughts for you, and I am crossing everything crossable on your behalf (including my eyes.)

    *hugs* Hang in there!

  8. Well, I hope you have triplets then - so there will be no need to want to do this again!

    I do have high hopes for you guys.

    I know this wasn't what you wanted to hear and I am sorry.

  9. Hoping those little guys keep dividing!!! GL with the transfer! Saying prayers of success!!!

  10. Oh, Chris, I'm agreeing with all of the previous posts, and adding my prayers for your 3 precious embies...I'm so sorry you are disappointed, and I understand. But your embies will be so much happier at home in you in just a couple of days and all of this can still have an extremely good outcome.

    Praying and sending hugs your way!! I wish I was going to see you sooner so I could be supportive in person. But for now I will continue to pray, and pray often!

  11. Thinking of you! {{{HUGS}}}
